My dad was diagnosed 5/02 with stage IV. He was thinking about getting radiation on lungs and liver (totally possible) until we found out that he has activity near his lymph nodes on ct scan (near esophagus). He is starting folfox + avastin + xeolda next week. Has anyone had chemo completely erradicate cancer in lymph nodes? We have not had much success with chem killing cancer. If we can get rid of what is in the lymph node area, he can have the procedure done to his liver and lungs. Any thoughts?
